7-Year-Old Terminally Ill Boy Sworn In As Honorary Cop

A terminally ill seven-year-old boy in California achieved his dream of becoming a Police officer following in his dad’s footsteps, who is a sergeant with the Torrance Police Department.

The boy, Drake Walker, was sworn in as honorary police officer, during a meeting at the City Council with relatives and friends.Walker was diagnosed in August, with an aggressive and inoperable tumour on his brain stem; and a GoFundMe campaign has also been set up for the Walker family.

The campaign says: “We hope to bless them in this (monetary) way to ease even a tiny bit of burden they might face along their journey AND memories of fun that will last forever. All funds raised go directly to the family to help support them in any way during this difficult time.”

Verse of the Day

For the Lord himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air. And so we will be with the Lord forever. — 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17 (NIV)
